"For 10 years my job has been an exciting adventure."

Henrik C., Trucking Team Leader with Danish roots

Henrik C.

"So what?" wondered Henrik in 2009 after his studies and two years of working in marketing. The Dane - who was born near the German border - took to his heels towards Vienna with a job application to LKW WALTER where he ended up finding happiness, both professionally and privately.

It was supposed to be a brief international experience. An excursion into international business beyond the Danish border. An exciting adventure in a European company. "A short stay turned into a long one. And work experience abroad turned into home." Henrik says happily. 

The passionate mountain biker started at LKW WALTER as a Transport Manager and then took advantage of one of many career opportunities within the company. Today, he leads a Trucking team that organises transports in Combined Transport between Germany and Sweden. With the aim of making it as environmentally-friendly as possible. A complex task that requires a lot of flexible thinking. Personally, as a father of two, Henrik has already become half Austrian. "I just need to work on my Viennese dialect."

"At least you need to be flexible and decisive."

Henrik's personal recommendation:

Flexibility and decisiveness are two very important characteristics that are needed in the WALTER GROUP. Because you need to independently master unpredictable tasks every day. But that makes the job so incredibly exciting.

Very good ones! In the WALTER GROUP you have every opportunity to start your career. If you come from an educational institute with an economic, linguistic or even technical focus, you can immediately and directly join our business. You can join without industry knowledge in the context of an intensive trainee programme which we call "Train the Winner".

Accompanied by your own coach, you will improve your professional and social skills and continuously grow into your future roles. Because the WALTER GROUP is constantly and sustainably growing, new career opportunities always arise.
Generally professional experience or industry knowledge are not necessary for entry into our operational business. Because we educate new employees as part of our "Train the Winner" trainee programme and we cover both theory and practice. However, there are some areas in which we greatly appreciate relevant experience and previous knowledge. For example, in our IT, Legal or Sales departments, where we can offer (young) professionals attractive career opportunities. Our recommendation: Just take a look at our employment opportunities.
The classic apprenticeships such as freight forwarding manager or office clerk are not offered in our company.

In our employment opportunities each advert has a link that takes you to the online application form. Please fill it out and send it together with your application documents. Immediately afterwards, you will receive an e-mail. It confirms that we have received your application. Then it takes a maximum of 14 days for you to recieve a message from us about the result of your application. If it is positive, the next steps are:

  1. First "getting to know you" interview by phone or Skype.
  2. Face to face interview with one of our recruiters.
  3. Possible second appointment with the head of a specialist department for certain specific positions.

We will inform you of the final result of your application by e-mail or phone. If you want information about your application status in the meantime, our HR manager will be happy to help you.
